CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A Pepsi franchise is planning to build a new customer service center in Cape Girardeau (juh-RAHR'-doh) that could create 74 jobs.

The Missouri Department of Economic Development said Friday that Pepsi MidAmerica would complete the $3.1 million project. The state is offering incentives of up to $1.3 million through community development block grants and the enhanced enterprise zone program.

Pepsi MidAmerica was founded in Marion, Illinois in 1935, and is the country's largest privately held Pepsi franchise. The company serves southern Illinois, southern Missouri, western Kentucky, northwest Tennessee and a small portion of northeastern Arkansas. It currently has customer service centers in other southern Missouri cities but not Cape Girardeau.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a Kansas City-area man has been charged with 18 felony counts in connection with about a dozen recent random highway shootings that have wounded three people.

Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said at a news conference Friday that 27-year-old Mohammed Whitaker of Grandview was charged with two counts of shooting into a motor vehicle and injuring a person, seven counts of shooting into a motor vehicle and nine counts of armed criminal action.

At least six of the shootings occurred near Grandview. The Kansas City suburb is home to an area known as the Grandview Triangle, where three interstates and U.S. 50 intersect.

The last confirmed shooting believed to be connected to the case was reported April 6th.

None of victims' wounds was considered life-threatenin

WASHINGTON (AP) -- There's a simple reason St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha felt comfortable putting a changeup in the ground with the bases loaded in the seventh inning of a tie game.
 
Yadier Molina was behind the plate.
 
"He's as good as anybody that I've ever seen, as far as keeping the ball in front," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said about his catcher. "That's a spot that we want (Macha) being able to throw balls in the dirt, because we know (Molina's) going to make that play almost all the time. Today was one of those times that's very rare."
 
Wacha's wild pitch was compounded by Molina's throwing error to allow two unearned runs, helping Gio Gonzalez and the Washington Nationals beat St. Louis 3-1 Friday night.
 
Gonzalez (3-1) allowed one run and four hits in seven innings, retiring the last 11 batters he faced. He finished with seven strikeouts and one walk as Washington ended an eight-game losing streak against St. Louis that dated to Game 5 of the teams' 2012 NL division series.
 
Wacha (2-1) gave up five hits and one earned run. But a night after the Nationals made three errors - they initially were charged with four, but one was changed to a hit Friday - it was the Cardinals' turn to be sloppy.
 
St. Louis finished with three errors, two coming in the pivotal seventh inning.
 
A pair of singles and an error by third baseman Matt Carpenter - who dropped Wacha's throw of Danny Espinosa's bunt - loaded the bases with no outs in the seventh.
 
"I stretched before I saw where it was going and ended up missing it. It was a good throw. I should have caught it," Carpenter said. "But it tipped off my glove and ended up being the difference in the game."
 
Wacha struck out Nate McLouth and got Jose Lobaton to hit a roller that led to a forceout at home. But with pinch hitter Zach Walters up, Wacha's pitch darted away from Molina, who won his sixth consecutive NL Gold Glove award in 2013.
 
"Just spiked a changeup," Wacha said.
 
With Ian Desmond racing home from third, Molina tried to make an underhand toss to Wacha. But the throw - which did not appear in time to beat Desmond, anyway - was off-target. It went into the Cardinals' dugout, allowing Espinosa to score, too.
 
"I'm just trying to make a play," Molina said. "I threw it away. My fault."
 
Desmond shouted and punched the air, a 1-1 game suddenly 3-1.
 
"Desi made the decision instantly to get toward the plate," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "He read it correctly."
 
As for the surprise factor, Williams said: "You never see a ball get away from Yadi. Ever."
 
On Sept. 24, in his ninth career start, Wacha no-hit the Nationals until there were two outs in the ninth inning, when Ryan Zimmerman's infield single ended the bid.
 
This time, Washington had three hits by the third, punctuated by Anthony Rendon's solo shot with two outs in the third. Rendon drove the first pitch of the at-bat, a 74 mph curveball, into the visitor's bullpen beyond left field for his third homer.
 
The Cardinals evened things in the fourth, when Allen Craig doubled off the wall in right, Molina singled, and Mark Ellis drove in a run with a blooper that right fielder Jayson Werth awkwardly attempted to reach but didn't. It was ruled a single.
 
Tyler Clippard came on for the eighth and needed 26 pitches just to get one out, on Jhonny Peralta's comebacker, after pinch hitter Jon Jay doubled and Carpenter walked. With runners on second and third, and No. 3-4 batters Matt Holliday and Craig coming up, Clippard was replaced by Drew Storen.
 
"You've got two great hitters right there, guys in scoring position," Storen said.
 
He was the closer back in October 2012, when he let the Cardinals erase a 7-5 deficit with two outs in the top of the ninth of Game 5 to win 9-7.
 
This time, Storen got Holliday on a popup in foul territory, then Craig on a groundout, before Rafael Soriano shook off a comebacker that hit his leg and a walk in the ninth to earn his fourth save.
 
"A good win. They're a tremendous team. They've gotten the best of us in the past," Rendon said. "But we're trying to change that."
 
NOTES: On Saturday, Cardinals RHP Lance Lynn (3-0, 4.00) will face Nationals RHP Jordan Zimmermann (1-0, 5.27 ERA). ... Molina has hit in 10 straight games.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - A St. Louis priest is accused of having sex with a minor at the Cathedral Basilica, where he served.

 

Reverend Joseph Jiang was arrested on Thursday evening. Prosecutors say he had sex with a male victim, who was under 14 years old. The alleged incidents took place between July 2011 and August  2012. The 30-year-old priest from China was assigned to the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis, where he lived with and was mentored by Archbishop Robert Carlson. 

 

The Archdiocese of St. Louis says it has revoked the priest's canonical privileges. Church officials encourage any reports of misconduct involving minors be reported to the Director of Child and Youth Protection at 314-792-7704 or law enforcement officials.
